A NICE FAMILY CHRISTMAS
A comedy with heart
WINNER - First Place - The McLaren Comedy Festival
WINNER - 2nd place (out of 125 scripts) The Robert J. Pickering Award for Playwriting Excellence
SEMI FINALIST - Neil Simon Festival, New Play Contest
It’s Christmas Eve at Helen Lundeen (Mom’s) Minneapolis apartment, three years after her husband died.
An unexpected visit from crazy Uncle Bob and their outrageous Grandmother starts the evening on its wild journey.
Middle son, Carl, has been charged to write an article for his newspaper about Christmas with his family, or he’s fired.
The problem is, he doesn’t have his family’s consent. One by one, we learn of each family member’s secrets, problems
and dysfunctions, and when they learn that Carl is writing an article with some very personal family information, the fruitcake
hits the fan. The question is, will the magic of Christmas bring them back together?
